Learning Designs and Teaching Strategies
Results for Learning Designs and Teaching Strategies
The aim of this project is to examine student’s responses in respect of their key tasks, learning outcomes and overall experience from a work-based experiential practicum programme in sport management. Understanding student’s perceptions will help to inform and change teaching practice through increased focus on specific graduate attributes and a broader range of added value aspects of WIL programmes that have been highlighted in previous research
Those involved in the teaching and learning of law students will be interested in this ongoing longitudinal study of law students. It is intended that, over the course of the study, a complete law student profile will be developed which will detail the expectations, views and experiences of students during each year of their studies and in their first years in the workforce.
This project sets out to develop strategies that will prepare occupational therapy students/new graduates to be confident evidence-based practice practitioners in a range of practice environments.
In 2012, Ako Aotearoa and the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations commissioned Heathrose Research Ltd. to undertake research into how tertiary organisations can effectively use the voice of students to improve quality of provision.
Building of an earlier Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub Project Fund project, (Luafutu-Simpson, P. et al., 2015), this collaborative project is focused on the implementation and monitoring of a Pasifika Success Toolkit in the Canterbury tertiary education organisations (Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury) . The longer view is to share the successful work and generalizable findings across, ideally, sub-sectors.
Six New Zealand tertiary institutions are engaged in a collaborative network of practice around learners and mobile devices, examining the ways in mobility, social media and new approaches to learning and teaching are changing the landscape of education. The project will generate a range of practical strategies for students, teachers and leaders to utilise the affordances of mobile devices for pedagogical transformation and empowering learners.
This new project, jointly commissioned by the Ministry for Women and Ako Aotearoa, seeks to increase the participation and success of women in construction and engineering related trades where they are traditionally under-represented.
This project seeks to identify the pedagogical success factors that make a difference for Pacific learners, and to then support and mentor colleagues to test the identified pedagogical approaches into their own programmes.
This project presents the results from a pilot of community-based Medicines and Health Literacy Clinics with final-year pharmacy students at the University of Otago.
The clinics are intended to not only provide an authentic learning experience for the students themselves, but also to create an opportunity for improving health literacy amongst the Otago population.
The clinics offer a patient-centred health information opportunity to improve health literacy in the community.
The HLMC (also known as a ‘Brown Bag Medication Review’) encourages patients to bring all of their medicines and supplements to a community setting without appointment or cost.
Typical discussions centre around answering patient concerns, verifying what is being taken, identifying medication interactions or errors and improving aspects of adherence.
This project evaluates a pilot intervention programme that aims to develop student numeracy and address the concern that many students enter university with low mathematics competency and experience difficulties with quantitative papers
